Nutrient strength

Hi, this might be a stupid question but I can't find the answer anywhere. If i'm using a hydro nutrient that is 20-20-20 and I only mix half the recommended amount in the same amount of water, would it make the mix 10-10-10 or is it still 20-20-20 in a smaller amount?

Thanks.

It is 20-20-20 in concentrated form. Once you dilute, the number reduces as much as you dilute it.

it won't make your mix 10-10-10
to make it simple:

if 8ml per gal. of 20-20-20 is the recommended dosage and adding the half of it (4ml) to your mix - its like adding 8ml of 10-10-10

get an EC meter to take out the guesswork

What makes you think that this will make a mixture of 10-10-10? Where does this information come from?

But at the expense of EC meter, I agree, the necessary device that helps to find out what the mixture, not guessing.

So Mr Switcher ... you seem to be saying the higher the numbers the stronger the potion? May I respectfully ask: is that what you are saying?

No I am saying that if you take a solution of 20-20-20 and double the liquid you have cut the strength to 10-10-10.

No. It doesn't make it a 10-10-10

20-20-20 simply means the product contains 20% nitrogen, 20% phosphorous, 20% potassium.

There is no relation between the dosage one uses and the percentage of NPK in fertilizer product other then changing the nutrient strength used.

Ah yes there is because that percentage is by volume. I'd perhaps avoid engaging in arguments when more knowledgeable people offer you insight. Otherwise why even ask the question if you have the answer (answer to that is because you do not have the answer, only questions:-)

Wrong.


The dosage rate on a fertilizer product doesn't make it a 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.

Try again.
